|Calvary by Josse Lieferinxe, circa 1500-1505|
I believe every word of the 66 books of Holy Scripture to be divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts, infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21. I believe that there is no other name under heaven by which sinners can be saved but that of the Lord Jesus Christ; and that Salvation is of the Lord.

Well I don't especially since original manuscripts for most of the books are lost. Also Paul wrote many commentaries that are from his own viewpoint.
That is a tact taken by liberals seeking to drive a wedge between Paul's writing and the rest of the New Testament. Firstly all of Scripture was divinely inspired, it doesn't matter if we don't have the original manuscripts. No document from antiquity has as many manuscripts as the New Testament. God uses the writers to transmit His Word to us.
